Storyline

In one unforgettable summer, three young men commit themselves to one of the most demanding youth activities in the country -- World Class drum and bugle corps: A veteran drumline member steps into a leadership role for the first time; a 15-year-old trumpet player from Texas becomes the youngest member of the entire corps; and a color guard member fights to finish his final season after receiving a life-changing diagnosis. Often referred to as "marching band on steroids," drum and bugle corps pushes young people to extreme levels, both physically and mentally -- all for one 11-minute performance. All three young men march with the Madison Scouts from Madison, Wisconsin. The strong brotherhood of this all-male organization helps them through their struggles and celebrates their triumphs.

Incredible!
16 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As one who has been involved with marching band and drum corps for the last 47 years, this is, by far, the best documentary ever made about the activity. By focusing on the three members featured in the film, the story becomes personal, while still telling the story of all 150 members of the Madison Scouts in 2012.

Not only was the film visually stunning, the sound was incredible. I have literally hundreds of recordings of drum and bugle corps, and the 5.1 Surround Sound did the absolute best job capturing the power of the percussion and the sizzle of the brass.

I hosted a screening of the film in Anaheim, CA, on January 15, 2015. There was definitely a shared emotional experience by the 100 or so audience members in attendance. And I spent several hours after the event reading the responses to the film posted on my Facebook page before I finally had to call it an evening.

If you are a fan of marching band and drum corps, or just really appreciate good story telling and hard working young adults, I can not recommend this film with enough words. You'll have to see it for yourself, and you'll be glad you did!

Great job, Mac, Tom and crew!
